Default Can you put a DOHC head on a SOHC VTEC d15b or d15a motor?

im thinking of putting a DOHC head on a car i might buy, but dont know if its possible to fit onto a SOHC VTEC 1600. Would it take much work?

the only one that'll fit is the dohc zc head..

not sure how much work is needed, but I think you should just swap in a sohc vtec and call it a day

the only DOHC head you can put on a D-series is a DOHC ZC or D16A8(9) head, and this would be a NON VTEC head, if you already have a ZC VTEC (d15 vtec) then it would be better to keep it SOHC VTEC, than DOHC non VTEC.

and i dont believe there is a way to have a DOHC VTEC D-series, i have never heard of this.

if you want DOHC VTEC, get a B16A swap
